We did have these classes at one point but it is difficult to have a 9 week class on this especially when the students all come from very different levels and backgrounds. Also the class was quite unpopular in comparison to other classes. If others would like this class let me know and I will look into it!

Downtown Performance Class?? YES YES YES, please.

I'd also be interested in shorter workshops for advanced dancers. Maybe a set of four, two hour sessions, or even just two. Topics good for these workshops: styling, musicality, afro-cuban, cuban, perfecting multiple-spins, advanced bachata, fancy footwork, adding tango or hiphop into one's salsa, etc.

So many areas that could possible attempt to satisfy our cravings to improve ourselves...

I second the motion for shorter more intense workshops for Advanced Dancers, Alfred!

I fourth the motion. I specially would love to see some spinning technique workshops or classes. And I guess the downtown location is unavoidable, at least make it late please, so people from far-far could make it there without struggling with the traffic. Smile

It's unfortunate to see people sit out during bachata and merengue songs, as they only know a few patterns and don't want to be boring or repeative. I think many students (especially beginners) would love to learn more bachata and merengue moves, as we only get a small taste of it in L1 and L2

I like that idea and I think a cha cha workshop could be fun, too. There isn't as much cha cha played at the salsa clubs I have been to but whenever it comes on I have no clue what to do so I have to sit out. Is cha cha included in any of the higher levels?

That would be great! Count me in for a bachata workshop and for a merengue workshop as well!
How about a mini-class bachata-merengue?

Cha Cha Cha is so much fun to dance to. It has such a good rhythm and really makes you want to groove. You can also find the Cha Cha Cha beat in alot of Top 40 songs. I remember we Cha-Cha-Cha-ed to "Pretty Women" at the Horseshoe Resort, during our helpers appreciation outing. We do a bit of Cha Cha Cha in L5 and L6, but I'd definately like to do more!
